i wish i wrote like rushdie - he writes so well every single time i read any of his books im filled with such jealousy for not having the ability or talent to construct sentences while telling a story the way he does.
i am however not very impressed with this book & find it rather draggy (&boring) - WTF IS UP WITH ALL THESE BAD BOOKS LAAA - i will however finish it because i am kiasu like that & will not waste my money by allowing it to simply collect dust on my book shelf
When I first read this book back in 2002 I absolutely loved it and would have given it five stars. I started re-reading it again last week and found that I didn't like it as much, that it sounded more like the rantings of an old man trying to sound relevant (and I say that as someone who's read and enjoyed a lot of his books).
I wonder if it's because I've somehow changed dramatically in six years, or whether all the pop-culture references that litter this book now seem terribly dated...
